Description
As valuable today as when it was first published in 1916, this remarkably thorough guide packs its thousand pages with information. It covers everything from the science behind crop rotation to the specifics of breeding better hogs; from raising perfect celery to maximizing yields in subtropical citrus groves; from improving farm soils to dealing with insect infestations and crop and livestock diseases, using methods that today's organic farmers would applaud. Indeed, in her introduction to this edition, organic gardener MaryJane Butters testifies to the utility of this volume, which she calls her "farm bible ... written in an era when almost all farmers in North America were still organic."
